In July I had my third trip to Paddlers Inn and it better not be my last. I hardly know where to begin. From a kayakers point of view it couldn't be a better place to stay. First,. the hosts, Josee and Bruce are such wonderful and unique people who have put their hearts and their souls too to create an awesome place. Each year that I have come they add a little something to make a great experience even better. The covered seating on the deck complete with fireplace offers a cozy place to chat and get to know some of the other guests. The kayaking possible;ities are endless. Bruce is always ready to help you pick just the right place for your abilities and the weather. Everything is spotless and they really try to make your visit memorable. I would come again, again and again!!!

We stayed in the Shoreline Cabin in August, a splendid little comfy home with an amazing view! Our cabin had all the essentials for cooking, plus a hot shower, BBQ and (more importantly) wildlife right outside the door. This is the perfect spot to kayak, wander or just relax - always surrounded by nature. Bruce and Josée were very welcoming and offered some great advice on spotting the local wildlife.

My husband, I, and two grand-kids started and ended our 5-day kayak trip at Paddler's Inn. We had an overall, wonderful experience there. The McMorrans are excellent hosts and the clean, comfortable accommodations are perfectly suited to the island wilderness gracing this amazing part of the world. More specifically, Paddler's Inn strikes just the right balance between rustic outdoors and modern amenity; between the opportunity for solitude and the chance to meet interesting fellow kayakers. In the words of our grand-kids; "Awesome vacation," and "Let's go back next year." I sincerely hope we can.

Paddler's Inn is a refuge in harmony with its environment. Perfect place to get off the grid for a bid, kayak through beautiful waters, yet come home to a bed, a hot shower, a kitchen, and a community of paddlers.
